I just purchased my RTIC 45 a few weeks ago and it has already surpassed my expectations. Had drinks in it for after work but our fridge went out so it's playing the roll of refrigerator right now along with my RTIC 65. Best cooler by far! If only they built fridge as strong as RTIC coolers.

I had this cooler for 1 week, when a catfish spine punctured the inside. I contacted RTIC and they immediately sent me a replacement. The replacement works so well that I bought a 65 quart.
Ordered mine on Friday revived it on Wednesday, filled with ice and drinks and ice on Thursday, here it is Sunday and only drained 11/2 cups of melted ice water, What a cooler, what a deal
I purchase the RTIC 45 mojave tan for my husbands birthday. Love the style, quality and the price, shipping was super quick. He will be using this awesome cooler for years to come. Thank you RTIC
We use this cooler on our boat as live aboards. We had a party one Saturday with others on the dock and told them to come back later for left over drinks. 4 days later they returned to get the leftovers...still had ice.
Great customer service! Ordered this morning and already got confirmation that the item is being shipped! Cant wait to compare it with my ORCA!
I have a tan 20 and a soft 30 and just ordered a white 65. I love my first two coolers a lot and cant wait for my third. Very durable and easily keeps cans and food cold for days.
I have to haul meat on occasion and wanted something to keep it frozen. The first time I used it I put some ice in packed the meat then topped off with ice. The ice had melted a little before I put it in the cooler. When I got home three hour later the melt from the ice had refrozen and I had to take a hammer to bust the ice from around the meat. I could not believe it. Great cooler to say the least. The lid seals so tight I have to give it a good tug to break the seal. Very happy with my purchase. I just put an order in for the 65.
These coolers are great! they are without a doubt firefighter proof!! No more broken hinges, latches, etc. Its also nice that they hold ice as long as they do for those long days on the fire line. The price.......well, enough said!!
We received our cooler for Christmas. What a great gift!!! Put it to the test and it held ice and drinks for 8 days before I had to dump the ice out! There was still solid ice in it and not just water!!!! Love these products, just order the soft cooler.
I have had the 45 for a few months now and it works as described. Very strong tough cooler that once closed will not leak outside air in. It is a deal.
I only write reviews for very good or very bad service. This one is for spectacular service. I ordered the 45 on 12/29/16. At 1:31 I received my purchase confirmation email. At 1:35 I received my order has shipped confirmation! Fantastic. Received my cooler 1/4/17, and that was with a 2-3 day holiday delay! Fantastic product and even better service. Highly recommend.
Love the cooler best cooler ever owned holds 2 cases of drinks and plenty of ice for almost 2 weeks without having to refill with ice
I bought the 45qt at the beginning of summer, didn't get to use it until Hurricane Matthew. I put 20 lbs ice in it, along with refrigerated items after I lost power. Food began to freeze it was so cold in the cooler. Ice last a week! And that was only 1/2 full of ice.
AWESOME PRODUCT. I HAVE NOT HAD ONE ISSUE WITH THIS COOLER OR ANY OTHER RTIC BRAND PRODUCT THAT I HAVE AND I HAVE A LOT
This cooler is tough, good looking and keeps ice frozen. It is noticeably heavier than cheaper coolers but expected if you want a lifetime cooler. Love it!
Rob in Evergreen, Colorado. I placed the order for a 45 by 11am on Dec 19, 2016 and it arrived at my front door by dinnertime on the 21st. How's that for turnaround during the busiest package delivery day of the year. I expect to be using this excellent cooler for many years into the future. Another satisfied customer.
This is an awesome ice chest. I've looked at all the others before I purchased the 45. Worth every penny. Now I own the 65 too. You won't be disappointed.
I will get the sale price when they are in stock please. Thank you
I ordered the 45 on 14th of December and got it on the 17th of December! 3 days! That's awesome. Now I'm just looking for a reason to use it!
